This short film by American director Ramin Bahrani (Goodbye Solo) traces the epic, existential journey of a plastic bag (voiced by Werner Herzog) searching for its lost maker, the woman who took it home from the store and eventually discarded it. Along the way, it encounters strange creatures, experiences love in the sky, grieves the loss of its beloved maker, and tries to grasp its purpose in the world.

Great video of the life of a plastic bag
Cute video illustrating the hopeless feelings of a single use plastic. All this bag wants is to be loved and cherished forever, but within a few days or weeks, like all our single-use plastics, it is discarded in the trash. Out of sight...out of mind. However, the trash isn't the end for our little friend the plastic bag....watch and find out where it ends up! You might be surprised!
